Hiking Boot Review: Locarno GTX Women’s Hiking Boot

The Locarno GTX Women’s Hiking Boot is the latest in our regular series of reviews.

The Locarno GTX is a brand-new boot from Lowa. It combines a fashion boot style with a functional walking boot. It’s a great light weight waterproof walking boot with a Lowa specific designed outsole.
Overall, the feel of this boot is light and very comfortable. This is very evident through the midfoot where you are aware of the hold and feel. Underfoot the boot feels stable and solid in a good way.

Profeet thoughts: The Locarno is a great merge between a good hill walking boot and an urban casual walker. In contrast to other boots in the same category, the lightness of the boot is unrivalled. Many of our female customers love the fit and feel without the restriction which can come with other ankle boots.

Upper is made from a nubuck leather and fabric around the ankle. This means great durability, but also great comfort around the cuff of the boot. The combination of this plus the gortex lining makes it such a great versatile boot. Around the heel there is a monowrap support frame help give more rearfoot hold.

The midsole and the outsole in Lowa’s very own Hybrib Trac giving great traction for hill walking.
